Wisdom For Each Day – September 2, 2014

To ask God to search out the darkest, most secret corners of our minds and hearts takes courage.

And yet what happens if we aren’t willing to do this?  Then the sins we know about remain unconfessed, and our fellowship with God remains cold and distant.  Perhaps more important, the hidden sins we may not even realize we have – sins like pride, suppressed anger, lack of love, jealously, a secret yearning for recognition – remain firmly in place, manipulating us and eventually destroying us.

Have the courage to pray this prayer.  And whatever God reveals, confess it, repent of it, and ask Christ to replace it with His purity and love.

Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.  See if there is any offensive way in me.

Psalm 139:23-24
